How to control 8 leds using Arduino UNO

Arduino control 8 leds (1)

hey guys this is my first arduino project  plz  comment how u feel.

Step 1: Things u need

As this is easy project for beginner’s so parts are also simple
1- Arduino uno or any other board will work
9- jumper wires or wires will also do
8 -leds any color u like i used 3 red, 3 green and 2 blue
8- 1k resistors

Step 2: Placing the leds and wiring

In this step u have to place the leds on the bread board i have kept the positive  wire on the right side .
Next wire them as shown in

Step 3: Uploading the code

//LED Pin Variables
int ledPins[] = {2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}; //An array to hold the pin each LED is connected to
//i.e. LED #0 is connected to pin 2, LED #1, 3 and so on
//to address an array use ledPins[0] this would equal 2
//and ledPins[7] would equal 9

* setup() – this function runs once when you turn your Arduino on
* We the three control pins to outputs
void setup()

//Set each pin connected to an LED to output mode (pulling high (on) or low (off)
for(int i = 0; i < 8; i++){         //this is a loop and will repeat eight times
pinMode(ledPins[i],OUTPUT); //we use this to set each LED pin to output
}                                   //the code this replaces is below

* loop() – this function will start after setup finishes and then repeat
* we call a function called oneAfterAnother(). if you would like a different behaviour
* uncomment (delete the two slashes) one of the other lines
void loop()                     // run over and over again
oneAfterAnotherNoLoop();   //this will turn on each LED one by one then turn each off
